John and Jim Harbaugh share sweet but awkward exchange after Ravens beat 49ers in Super Bowl

Shutdown Corner

As you may have heard, Super Bowl XLVII marked the first time two brothers faced off as head coaches. In the end, it was the older brother getting the win as John Harbaugh coached the Baltimore Ravens to a 34-31 win over his brother Jim's San Francisco 49ers. The two met up at midfield at the end of the game for an awkward, but sweet exchange.

With the stiffest upper lip possible, Jim walked right to the center of the field to meet his brother. John did no celebrating until they shook hands. They briefly spoke to each other, with Jim ending it by touching his brother's cheek and saying, "Good job." With that, John was left to celebrate, and Jim to console his players.

"The end of the game was the hardest thing I've ever experienced," John said during the postgame trophy presentation. CBS commentator Jim Nantz asked what he said to Jim.

"I told him I loved him."

What did he say back?

"He said congratulations," John said.

Jim Harbaugh has been at the center of controversy during postgame handshakes in the past. When he met up with Detroit Lions coach Jim Schwartz after a big San Francisco win, Harbaugh slapped Schwartz on the back. Schwartz took offense, and followed Harbaugh into the tunnel to have words with him.

But there was no drama this time, just two brothers meeting at midfield with dozens of cameras surrounding them.
